    Hmm... 3/8ths is about 9.6mm... I know B&Q round my way have 10mm thread 100mm castor wheels that, if glued in, would do the job. I was considering them for The Honey Badger. They had a few different...

    The 1" box section is too small for existing holes at the moment and 2"x1" bar I wouldn't have a good use for. The checkplate might come in handy through for remaking the front protective cover on...
